I will replace the rear hatch gas struts soon because they are becoming weak.
The Probe handles like a dream, and is very fast around corners.
The position of the driver's seat makes it very easy to drive the car with confidence. The rear view mirror allows you to see out the entire rear window easily.
The motor is only a 2.0 liter, four cylinder, but has a lot of pep to it.
I added a 2.75 inch exhaust pipe from the catalytic converter back to a high performance muffler and got a rich deep rumble out of the car.
It is a little hard to find any other performance parts, though.
It would have been nice if Ford had given both the SE and the GT more power.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

2.75" is WAY too big of a cat-back system for this car, recommended size is 2.25" for the SE. Even on the GT a 2.5" is plenty big. Too large an exhaust can hurt torque and low end performance.
1994 Ford Probe Automatic from North America
Only purchase this car if you have a plethora of monetary resources, no job, and lots of time
Transmission locked up/froze 4 months after purchase and 1 month after warranty expired on parts and labor. Replacement transmission took 3 months to replace.
2nd transmission locked up/froze 4 months after being repaired. Replacement took 3 months to find problem, parts, and complete the labor.
Airbag light started to blink on and off and engine light always on after last transmission replacement.
Front right headlight just stopped working.
Right front blinker stopped working.
Spring to gas cover broke.
Front bumper fell off backing out of parking lot. Repairs to front bumper cost $2,000.00. Auto body shop unable to determine why bumper fell off. No external damage to bumper, damage at site of bolts.
I would never recommend this car to anyone- ever.
This has been the worst car experience I have ever had.
However, the seats are comfortable and the trunk has a lot of room. Nice body and smooth ride when the car works.

You have no idea what your talking about do you? you don't just back up out of a parking lot and have your bumper fall off. The only reason that stuff is happening to your car is because you treat it like crap!!

Have to agree with that previous comment. Two transmissions going in such a short time seems pretty suspicious. All of the other issues seem pretty minor to me. You should take better care of your car.
